As winter ascends and the world outside my window shifts towards a monochrome field, I’m compelled to create from the boldest, most saturated colors in my mental paint box. One of the many wonderful aspects of having married into an Indian family many years ago is my prized collection of silk saris, not to mention decades’ worth of photos of weddings, graduation parties, baby showers and other joyous gatherings.
I find myself turning to these often these days as a source of inspiration and ideas. These new fall colorways are all executed on Harbour Singles fingering to best capture the silken fabric sheen. I’m happy to take custom orders for singles, lace and DK weights as well.
Shown together here are Turmeric, Sirocco and Lucia, as well as my current favorite — Mysore Silk.
